Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care

Eartha Kitt - Angelitos NegrosĀ (1970 performance)

This is the slightest hint at how cool Gwyneth Anderson’s AERIAMETER at the Experimental Sound Studio is… Go check it out for yourself, through August 24!

I really wish the people giving expert advice on video editing help forums online would be more polite and less straight-up MEAN. Makes me (and I imagine lots of others) never want to ask questions.

I shined light on molecules and hoped they broke.

Compound microscope, France, 1751. While this instrument would have been initially used by a curious aristocrat, slides accompanying the device span into the mid-19th century, indicating a number of people over many decades put its gears and lenses to use.

These photos are shadowgraphs of a hydrogen flame exploding inside a balloon. The shadowgraph optical technique highlights density and temperature variations through their effect on a fluidā€™s refractive index. Here we see that the hydrogen flame has a strong cellular structure and is more turbulent than a methane flame. The cellular structure is a sign of an instability in the curved flameĀ front. The instability and accompanying cellular appearance are a result of the complicated transport and reaction of fuel and oxidizer inside the flame. (Photo credits: P. Julien et al.)

This timelapse video shows Jupiter as seen by Voyager 1. In it, each second corresponds to approximately 1 Jupiter day, or 10 Earth hours. Be sure to fullscreen it so that you can appreciate the details. The timelapse highlights the differences in velocity (and even flow direction!) between Jupiterā€™s cloud bands. It is these velocity differences that create the shear forces which cause Kelvin-Helmholtz instabilitiesā€”the series of overturning eddiesā€”seen between the bands. Earth also has bands of winds moving in opposite directions,Ā but there are fewer of them and the composition of our atmosphere is such that they do not make for such a dramatic naked eye view of large-scale fluid dynamics.
